I will vote for Newt if he is the candidate! S*#t, I would even vote for Paul if he is the candidate. My first choice was Perry, my second is Santorum, my third choice is Bachman, fourth is Palin, then Cain, Fifth is Newt, then Romney, then in last Paul. What I want has no relavance on what will be . I am convinced that Newt will remain strong, until the going gets real tough, then, like before, he will quit. So, as I see it, our only chance is Romney. Hey, like I said before, I hope that I am wrong. At this point, I am certain that Santorum is the best hope for America. It would be Newt, but I do not believe that he will follow thru, like Thompson, Ross Perot or even John McCain, none of them really had the desire to win. Romney is determined, reliable, dedicated, competent, reflects traditional American family values, a patriot, supports the military and has a following. I have to set my prorities straight, ABOVE ALL ELSE, OBAMA MUST BECOME THE EX PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, EVEN IF HILLARY CLINTON WOULD RUN AND WIN, AMERICA WOULD BE SAFER AND BETTER OFF THEN WE ARE TODAY!
I am disappointed that Bush Sr. let America down by not getting re-elected. I believe that George Bush Jr, was one of the greatest presidents that America has ever had. And I saw Newt Gingrich support Great American Values and fight for every American. I also saw Newt Gingrich turn tail and run when he was relentlessly attacked by the immoral Democrats. Past performance is a good indicator of future performance. I do not want a leader that will be afraid to do his job because someone made him uncomfortable or scared. Jarhead would be a better comment. Semper Fidelis Mike
Now that all viable candidates have been removed from the race, the Obama muslim machine has won. The race is over. The USA falls even futher. The scene was fascinating to watch, Hussan never said a word. We, here, has the seen the enemy. All that remains, is, what are you going to do about it?
I don't think there's a single Tea Party conservative who has enough experience to convince the voting public he's the guy for the job. The movement is just too new. Palin's not the one. Her negatives are too high and I doubt she could overcome that. I like her where she is, giving stump speeches and taking potshots at the idiocy of the left.
The Republican nominee needs to choose one of the Tea Party rock stars as his running mate (I think it has to be West or Rubio, but Rand Paul or Mike Lee would also be acceptable) so that true, responsible, sensible conservative values have an inside track when the time comes to choose his successor.
I don't trust any of these guys to shut off the tap, especially not in his first term. At best, I expect spending to slow to Bush era levels - maybe a little lower. I expect the economy to explode regardless just because the anti-growth mommy will have been sent back to Chicago. It's the next guy who will have to take the big step and really reform entitlements.
Newt Gingrich, He abandoned his promises and violated his contract with America. When the Media attacked him, he ran to the corner to hide and abandoned America! Here is some of Newt's "Contract With America"------------On the first day of their majority in the House, the Republicans promised to pass major reforms:
1. require all laws that apply to the rest of the country also apply to Congress;
2. select a major, independent auditing firm to conduct a comprehensive audit of Congress for waste, fraud or abuse;
3. cut the number of House committees, and cut committee staff by one-third;
limit the terms of all committee chairs;
4. ban the casting of proxy votes in committee;
5. require committee meetings to be open to the public;
6. require a three-fifths majority vote to pass a tax increase;
7. guarantee an honest accounting of the Federal Budget by implementing zero base-line budgeting. ---------http://www.house.gov/house/Contract/CONTRACT.html---------How many of these problems still exist today?
Perry just had to face reality. Still, this is a very sad day for me. Rick Perry was the best hope for America. But why, I ask, did Rick Perry give his support to Newt? If he had given it to Santorum; Paul and Newt would have had to throw in the towel. Now the division continues. Newt, Paul, Santorum and ineveitably Romney comes out on top. Thus sealing permanent division in the Republican party for this election cycle, giving Obama a fighting chance. And if we leave anything to chance, we are potentially doomed!
I'm TERRIFIED of getting Married! Which is really weird, because it's definitely something I see for myself. But yet, NOTHING scares me more than that thought. I wonder why that is? Really...it confuses me! LOL!
I don't go for a lot of sentimental stuff, but I love that talk about redemption and forgiveness for those who seek God.
I agree with Perry: Newt isn't perfect. But I do hope Perry's endorsement help's a lot to boost NotRomney's ...I mean Newt's... campaign.
I saw the title "Full Speech: Perry drops out, endorses Newt f... ".
And i had to laff because i my mind filled in the blanks...
"Perry drops out, endorses Newt f@&ing Gingrich, baby!"
He is now, but only because no serious Tea Party contender ever entered the race. He's the closest thing we have left.
That wasn't my point at all. We're left with a big government squish, two big government social conservatives and a crazy person. I think it comes down to Romney and Gingrich. I don't trust either of them since both have a history of compromising with the other party. The most important thing is to put more Tea Party conservatives in the House and take a filibuster-proof majority in the Senate. Then we, the people, need to keep their feet to the fire and make sure Congress ignores the histrionics of the crybabies on the left and sends responsible bills that include serious spending cuts to whichever one ends up as President.
Just like Fred Thompson last time, Perry gave his best performance on the way out the door. Go back to Texas and let you economy continue to give Obama the bird.
This is my first election I have ever followed in depth..(21yo, don't worry I would'n have voted for Obama back in 08) so I have a question: If someone drops out of the race, and has already won delegates from a state (like Santorum in Iowa) where do those delegates go to? or how does that work?
As much as I like both Newt and Santorum, they need to play it safe and eventually one needs to get behind another. I really hope that happens. Newt/Santorum...anyone? Santorum/Newt???
What is more bothersome: Newt making money being a consultant for Freddie Mac or Mitt Romney (RINO) winning the nomination?
HAHAHAHAHA! The Shamwow! LOL! That was so awesome!
It just seemed like so much effort to get here to kiss him on stage, that if I were in his position, I would have gone for the gold! LOL! Then again, I am single... :-D
Again, it boils down to voting against a particular candidate instead of voting for one. There is not one single candidate that truely represents me or my beliefs in total. If I could take parts from several of the candidates to craft the perfect one for me, then they probably won't be 100% right for some of you. We must vote for the most reasonable alternative to what sits in the White House now. Almost nobody will like the Republican nominee 100%, but I do know that most of us do NOT LIKE Obama a full 100%. Almost anyone is a better choice.
He gives a farewell speech that makes your heart smile, feel proud, and look up. He is an inspiration. (How can we get him to run for Governor in California?)
Oh I'm sure! I just have a REALLY hard time showing, or receiving, any affection or praise (which usually doesn't correlate too well with relationships).
A good man and a real loss to the Country
It's a shame he had so many problems at the start
I believe he felt too confident and did not prepare properly
In business - You ALWAYS have to start from scratch with
each new situation - He did not prepare for the newest situation he was in
I blame his staff for that
The good news is he can now shred Obama from the outside
You ever see Joe Biden's energy policy?
If that doesn't cheer you up, I don't know what will!!!
